Justices want more information.
And one fewer Justice on the high court.
Yes, the Obamacare HHS mandate does violate fundamental rights, said justices willing to state the obvious.
That headline fires the imagination.
It’s not really news anymore that signup for healthcare as promised and touted by the president has hit another glitch. But that it did on deadline day generated at least some headlines.
In a discussion about Tuesday’s oral arguments on two cases challenging the government’s coercive mandate, one legal counsel said “it was really oral arguments."

With over ninety lawsuits in courts for over two years contesting the government’s violation of the Constitution and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, this one may be emblematic.
